A man in Ohio has become the first patient ever to move his paralyzed hand by using his thoughts. In a small, crowded laboratory at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, 23-year old Ian Burkhart looked closely at his hand, squinted with concentration and made a fist as doctors, neuroscientists and engineers from Battelle, and Ian’s family gasped.
A good (font) family is made up of all sorts of weights, shapes, and mildly amusing icons.
For just a few hours more, you can pick up the complete Eveleth Letterpress Font Family. As vintage as your dad’s underwear and as distressed as a single mother, this metaphor for fonts got a little…
I put all the previous info under a readmore// this post was getting long.
Summary: I’m short on bills and rent and a payment I /have/ to make, and in the middle of all that my grandmother is in the hospital and not doing well at all. I’m going up this weekend to visit her, at my mum’s recommendation.
So I’m STILL a bit behind on my bills and stuff, but not by much; I’m only 100$ short on what I need, and anything I raise beyond that is just going to more bills. Or maybe groceries. We’ll see.
So yeah! I’m still taking commissions!
I’m waiting on the okay from a couple commissioners to post theirs on my tumblr, and I have a couple more I’m working through, but please take a commission? ;v; I really need the help;;

And in case anyone doesn’t want to commission but still wants to contribute,my paypal info is (Please note it is not the same as my email address) email@example.com
And as always, thank you so much for the reblogs, and commissions. I appreciate the signal boosting so much. ;v;

Nobody ever tells you that the punishment for having good penmanship is that your family makes you address every stupid package and envelope in the house, forever.
I have Keratoconus which is a genetic condition that causes the cornea to turn cone shaped. It makes it hard to see, because bright lights form halo effects, obscuring the vision, and making it difficult to read, and in my case, draw. The day before my birthday, I went to a specialist, who gave me three options; Cross linking eye surgery, (which is still considered experimental in the United States, and not covered by insurance) Intact lenses (also not covered by insurance) or complete cornea transplants (Which is covered by insurance, but much riskier than the other two listed).
Although there is some hope, since the Intacts is currently going through trial runs and studies for it to be approved by most insurances, I will learn by october, if I will be an acceptible participant for the study, and receive the intacts at either a reduced price, or not pay at all.
But, worse case scenerio, I will have to pay $5000-9000 per eye.
I cannot afford that, on my walmart salary. My family is barely skating by with what we have, and we still struggle every month to make ends meet. There is absolutely no way we would be able to pay for this surgery.
And, that really scares me.
As an artist, and a writer, I depend so much on my eyes. Keratoconus is not curable, and will only worsten, if they go untreated. I NEED this surgery, but I can’t pay for it, with the few hundred bucks I get from putting up with walmart customers.
So, I turn to you, Tumblr. This is very hard for me to do, since I was raised to believe that if someone can work for their money, they very well should, and reserve the free help to the people who truly cannot help themselves. But, if you feel like you can, and want to donate, please feel free to send that money to my Paypal, at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to help in another way, please spread my Commissioning Info or feel free to commission a piece of artwork from me directly by sending me an ask here, note me at my Dev.art, or Email me your information at the same Email stated for my Paypal.
Simply re-blogging this really helps as well.
Thank you for taking your time for reading this out.
I’ll share this before I close the blog because it makes me sad.
